Hamid & Hamida :: Family Session

Lots of bribing too place during this session. The exchange of choice was jelly beans. Who doesn't LOVE jelly beans, right? Deal went like this, you hand over the beans, we MIGHT just look at the camera here or there. Hand over more beans and we might even smile. This is truer then you think. :)

Wonderful family shoot from a few weeks ago. The kids were SO CUTE! Could have passed for one of my nieces or nephews. :) H&H, you have beautiful children. Hope you love what we created as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Christmas is soon approaching and my calender for Family pics is filling FAST. I'm currently completely booked for all of Sept & Oct. If you've had it in mind to have a session for holiday cards I email book me:) I have about 5 sessions left.

Thanks for the look my friends.

What a handsome family!

I love this.

I have a hole in my stomach...

Those eyes. awwwwww.

Cathy & Nate :: Wedding

The cop and the nurse! Emotions were on high at this one. Lots of tears. Lots of laughs. Loads of fun. Thanks for letting me be a part guys. You'll remember these cool cats from their engagement session a while back. Get this, they went to Australia for about a month for the honeymoon. They tried to bring me back a kangaroo but customs stopped em. Stinks.

The were married at St. Anne's Catholic Church in San Francisco. WHAT A GORGEOUS PLACE!
The architecture is breathtaking. Reception was at The Crown Plaza in Foster City.

Big ups to my buddy Sergio for coming down from Seattle to come help us out. Talented young guy, steady holdin it down in his part of the world. Him and the Quan Bomb both came out. These guys didn't even know what hit em. :)

Thanks for the look see everyone. Congratulations to the bride and groom once again.

Shot of the groom was taken by Sergio. :)

Is this place crazy or what?!

The dragon KICKED the lettuce head. I love their reaction here.

Best money Dance shot you'll ever see in your life.

Yo sup wit it mi peeps?! Sorry, had an ebonics moment for a sec. Better now. Okay.

Marissa and Manny belong to each other. Belong like Bonnie and Clyde belong. Belong like, peanut butter and jelly belong. Belong like Sam and a Ferrari belong.

Business branding :: Brarakah Life

Something different from the norm for me and your viewing pleasure. I had the opportunity to shoot for "Barakah Life", (blessed, happy life) . The company sells childrens crafts, textiles, Islamic art and other goods focused to the Muslim community. The purpose for the shoot was to produce some product shots, head shots and establishing some brand identity. Images will be used for printed publication, trade show work and all things web.
Special thank you to our children models who did an exceptional job! :)

Had a great time making magic Khadija. You put in a ton of work getting things together and the final images here really show. MAGIC. I wish you and your company MUCH success. Enjoy the shots everyone and happy Friday!


Location here was AWESOME. My secret ;)

She is a peaceful, warm soul. I felt these images really capture her person.
What she does best. :)
